Ace of Diamonds Painting begins with a full power wash to remove dirt, debris, and mildew. Power washing is the first step to a good paint job. It also removes some of the chalking paint that may remain from previous paint jobs. After a thorough power wash, the new paint will adhere better and bond to the old surface more efficiently. This makes your exterior painting job last longer, reducing the need for home painting in the future.
Ace of Diamonds Painting in Longmont applies a full mask of unpainted surfaces – including brick, windows, fixtures, and roof-line. We are sure to cover all decorative landscaping as well. Masking a house the right way is hard and takes a lot of skill. It is imperative that masking be done right, and the expert painting contractors at Ace of Diamonds Painting ensure a quality masking job every time.
Scrape and Sand
The next step in an exterior painting project involves scraping in order to remove old, peeling paint and feather sanding of bare wood for better surface area and a smooth finish. Areas of peeling and flaking paint need to be scraped and sanded in order to ensure a long-lasting paint job. If areas are not sanded, new paint will not stick well.
“Spot” or “Full” prime
Before the first coat of color is applied on an exterior painting job, a primer coat is applied on all bare wood and other areas where paint is failing. Bare wood areas that have been scraped and sanded will be spot primed using a high-quality primer. Primer soaks into wood better than latex paint, and it creates a glue between the wood and the paint that will ensure a long-lasting home painting job.
Caulking the exterior of your home will seal nail holes, siding cracks, gaps, nail heads, and windows. Ace of Diamonds Painting uses a premium elastomeric acrylic sealant with excellent flexibility and performance. It is the best latex choice for exterior applications.
When the prep for your exterior painting project is complete, we will spray the body of the house, followed by hand-brushing and rolling the trim for full coverage with crisp clean lines. We only use acrylic paint that can withstand Colorado’s tough, ever-changing climate and is top-rated by consumer reports.
Once the exterior painting has had time to dry, we recommend the body is gone over again vertically with a roller in order to provide additional coverage and a nice even finish. Ace of Diamonds Painting offers this as an additional option, and it can really make a huge difference.
Once your exterior painting project is finished, Ace of Diamonds Painting will review the finished product with you and confirm complete satisfaction of the job.
